iMovie - Importing Files

This document describes how to import files in iMovie.

Importing video clips and images is the first step in creating an iMovie project.

To begin importing: 

  1. Click the Import button in the bar at the top of iMovie, go to File > Import Media, or press Command + I.
  2. Navigate to the folder containing the media to be imported.
  3. Click the media to be imported and choose Import Selected. By holding Command and clicking, more than one video or image can be selected at a time.
  4. Items will be imported into an Event with today’s date.

Alternatively, media can be selected and dragged from the Desktop or Finder directly into an event in the Library Pane.
